After-School Programs

Junior Achievement of Northern New England (JANNE) provides programs to over one-hundred after-school organizations and school-based programs.  Some of these programs are the same as those offered during the school day, while others are tailored to the non-classroom setting.  JANNE also promotes programs through which students gain practical knowledge by spending time in actual office environments.

  • JA It’s My Business (Grades 6-8) teaches students entrepreneurship skills through innovative activities that focus on filling a need, knowing your customer and product, being creative and innovative and believing in yourself.
  • JA Job Shadow provides students the opportunity to experience first-hand the realities of a working day as they shadow business volunteers. By exposing students to various business professions, the JA Job Shadow program motivates them academically and provides them tangible career goals.
  • JA More than Money (Grades 3-5) teaches students about earning, spending, sharing and saving money.  This program also introduces them to businesses they can start or jobs they can perform to earn money.

All JA programs are designed with some intra- and inter- grade flexibility, and can be tailored to accommodate relative performance levels.
